Love it. These sayings are sinking into history with the loss of an older generation. I still keep my nan's sayings going. They make the kids laugh. Why, I told my husband only this morning when he came downstairs dressed more smartly than we're used to for a Saturday morning, that he was 'all fur coat and no knickers'. xx

Love the Header. I love the old sayings too. My sister and I still keep our English grandmother's sayings going...such as "she is such a fashion plate".

Have a great weekend.

Kim said...

Hahahaha, I am so pleased you like my phrase. It must go back to the Old West in the United States! We hear it all the time. You are so kind to feature my mind boggles!

Kim said...

Tell Tracey @vintage bothy that Hitch in your giddy up means you may get down but can't get up-you'll get a crick in your back! hahaha
Let's keep those old sayings alive and coming!

I've never heard that one before, but I love to hear these lovely old sayings. One of my favourites is 'It's a bit black over Bill's mothers' when the weather isn't looking too good!!

I too love the new header, I am glad 'Ted and Bunny' are still there :)
I love the old sayings, can't think of any off hand, but I know I use some (nanna brain)
Hugs Sandi xx

My Gran`s saying whilst waiting for guests to arrive was............."Well if they don`t come they haven`t got the trouble of going back" !!
My father`s was....." Where o`are you be, by land or sea, always let your wind go free"...no comment on that one!

What a funny phrase! My mum was forever talking about people 'going all round the houses' to tell you something - though she was the world's best at that!! "I went to the shop - not the one on the corner - did you know there's a new man in there? - the one by the hairdressers where Mary had her hair done for John's wedding - of course you know they're divorced now......."

Kim said...

What great fun my Giddyup has went and got UP!

Serenata said...

Wonderful saying, I can imagine you finding all sorts of occasions to use it during the week!

The one that gets used around here, if someone has injured themselves, is that they have a "peculiar hitch in their get-a-long." Give me time and I can come up with hundreds of these.

That saying is a goodie and I've never heard it before either. Here's an Aussie saying meaning surprise or amazement

"Great galloping goannas"
